Queso Blanco Dip (White Cheese Dip), The Second and Final Attempt


I did it, I did it!  Actually, I should be yelling “WE did it!”  One year ago I posted a recipe for Queso Blanco, but it didn’t quite match the wonderful, runny restaurant dip that we love oh-so-much.  It was good in taste, but the texture was a little funny and quickly thickened off the […]

Pause for Prayer for a Friend


I’ve mentioned before that in the (almost) five years I’ve been blogging, I’ve developed friendships with other bloggers where even though we might not have met in real life, they still are special friends in which I hold a tender place in my heart.  There is an immediate bond with other bloggers about our common […]

Wild Rice with Mushrooms


Do you have any recipes that you prefer to eat the day after you made it?  This is the exact case for me when it comes to this rice dish.  I’m not sure if it’s because the flavors meld longer, or because the texture improves after sitting in the refrigerator, but this rice won my […]

Pumpkin Pie


When I was was at the Foodbuzz Festival a couple of weekends ago,  Ben decided to buy one of his favorite desserts at the store, pumpkin pie.  There was still about three-quarters of the pie left when I arrived home, and he slowly made his way through it during the week.  After the third or […]

DIY Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice


If you’re anything like me, this time of year you are starting to get tired of dirtying multiple measuring spoons in order to measure out a combination of spices that will equal to pumpkin pie spice.  I’ve never bought pumpkin pie spice, because I always have its basic ingredients on hand to measure out myself […]

Green Bean Casserole From Scratch


(Hopefully I’ll snatch a better picture next week, when I make this again during the daylight hours. Until then, please trust me when I say that these beans are goo-oood!)  😉 Only one more week until Thanksgiving.  Can you believe it?  Are you ready?  We finalized our plans yesterday to hop across the street to […]

Hummingbird Cupcakes


It’s time for another virtual party!  If you missed the other parties, a virtual party is when a group of blogger friends choose a day to write about a recipe that we would have brought to a real-life get together.  And, the only thing keeping us from a real-life party is that we live far […]

Caramel Corn


If you’ve been reading food blogs for a few years, you are more than likely familiar with my friend’s blog, Elly Says Opa!  And, if you know of Elly’s blog, you definitely know of a blogging event she used to host called Eat to the Beat.  I remember reading the collection of posts in my […]

Chewy Triple Chocolate Cookies


When it’s time for dessert, I typically lean towards anything with chocolate.  So, it shouldn’t come to anyone’s surprise that I craved these cookies that are triply chocolaty the moment I saw them.  This is one of those recipes that I started making a while ago, but haven’t had the chance to share with you […]

Popcorn on the Stove


Popcorn.  A food that serves many memories for me.  I think back to college, when my friends and I hit up the movies, we were too broke to buy the theater popcorn.  Instead, we quickly popped up a bag of microwave popcorn in our dorm room and then snuck it in one of our (way-too-big) […]

Foodbuzz, Friends and Fanatics


Hello from San Francisco!  I’m at my first ever food blogging conference with Foodbuzz and having oh-so-much fun! Jessica and I met up in Oakland and headed to our hotel with our spectacular view.  (That is, if you think that a tempting view of shopping is spectacular.) I’ve met so many blogging friends… …and got […]

Chicken Enchilada Soup


I’m so excited!  Today I’m heading up to San Francisco to meet up with a *bunch* of fellow food bloggers for the 3rd annual Foodbuzz Festival.  We’ll be wining and dining, and attending break-out sessions to learn from the best of the best.  I’ve never been to San Francisco, yet this month I’ll find myself […]

Lindy’s Scones Giveaway – CLOSED


Tell me if you’ve heard this as many times as I have in the last week:  “I can’t believe it’s almost November!”  And now it’s actually arrived.  Halloween is over and it is time to start thinking (if you haven’t already) about the holidays.  Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner.  Are you ready?
